About Ian Morrison

Here I am running toward the finish line at the 2009 Honolulu Marathon. Despite the smile, I am in some serious pain here.

Ian Morrison purchased this house in 1981

Why Ian Morrison chose Salisbury

Our parents bought the house when I was a kid. My Dad took the run down beach cottage that was there and rebuilt it into a great 2 apartment home! My brother and I now take care of the house from afar with a tremendous amount of help from our property manager, Eric.

What makes this house unique

The rental property is located right next to the house I grew up in. It is on the beach side of the street with one house to walk by to get onto the beach. The beach is great and the ocean is even better.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We indeed had a very enjoyable stay at your place and quite pleasant whether, too.

Juste parfait / Just perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Pour une 2e année, nous avons louer cette maison et tout est tout simplement parfait : la localisation (à 20 sec de marche de la plage, 3 min a pied d'un dépanneur, 20 min à pied de Salisbury Beach où il y a des arcades, crème glacée et restaurants, 10 min de voiture de Hampton beach) et la tranquillité de la place. La maison est parfaite pour 2 familles car il y a 3 chambres, les enfants se partageant la 3e, ce qui réduit le coût de la location. Si je gagne le million, je me promets d'aller m'y acheter une résidence. Danielle

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 1st time we have rented using VRBO and it was a positive experience. We just returned from 4 glorious days at this beach house. There was plenty of room for all of us; mom, dad, 2 middle school boys, and Nana. The house was clean when we arrived, we paid for linens and bath towels which worked out great, kitchen is well equipped, beds were comfy, gas grill, lots of windows for the ocean breeze. Eric, the property manager, is very nice, was attentive to our few needs, and gave us some tourist suggestions. Email communication and reservation process with the owner went very smoothly. Would definitely rent this property again!

Another great year

  • 5 of 5

it was my 2nd year renting the house and another perfect vacation. the house was ready for our arrival neat and clean. We really appreciate the quiet family area location. I love being able to step off the deck right into the sand. I would reccommend it to anyone. It's a great house and great location.

A Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the most perfect location at Salisbury Beach. It's in the North End between the State Reservation and Seabrook, NH. It's quiet with mostly families as renters or full time residents in the area. You can step off the deck and put your toes in that warm sand. The property was clean and exactly as shown and described. Another great thing is that you can open windows on both the beach side and the street side and get wonderful cross-breezes at night that you can't do with some of the rentals that rent front half/back half. I highly recommend renting this beach house.

Another Wonderful Year At The Beach

  • 5 of 5

This year I had the pleasure of staying 2 weeks at the "Beach House". The area is wonderful, the owners and property manager very helpful and the fireworks downtown on Saturday night were excellent. If you like a little fun at night, the bands and dancing at the center (which is a pleasant walk from the house) are lots of fun for adults as well as children. Mini golf in the area as well as a water park, can give you a break from a day on the beach. The local restaurants offer some excellent sea food as well as other fare. The house is well maintained and always clean and neat when we arrive. Great place to stay and enjoy the sun and fun!
